Hi GMC,

I;m finally back online after, say, three weeks? what's been going on?
There was trouble with my new internetprovider so I was off here for a while, hate it when that happens! mad.gif

Anyway, I was looking for some modern funk bands with songs that me and my band could cover , Right now we're covering some stevie wonder, maroon 5 and John Mayer even, and probably "the haggis horns" and the bamboos in the future.

I'm not so fond of the old school stuff, I'm looking for something in between pure funk, pop and soul probably, anyone any suggestions? smile.gif

Cheers!
Lester

could check out my old band biggrin.gif www.myspace.com/bigdaddymoochin

erm... how about Sharon Jones and the Dapkings, or anything from the Daptone stable, Poets of Rhythm esp there early album Practice what you preach.

Other bands worth a mention are the new mastersounds & Speedometer.

Kings go forth are currently out and about on scene and you may dig that... other than that Sharon Davies did a killer track with the Soul Destroyers abut 10 years back and all the stuff that came out from the Finland label Timmion is awsome...
